Financial stability is more than just earning
Itís about saving for the future. Itís about
planning ahead for a disaster. Itís about having peace of mind.
More than 25% of households in our four-parish
area are not financially stable Ė thatís nearly one in five households. United
Way of Acadiana seeks to reduce that number through initiatives such as Earn
It! Keep It! Save It! and the Money Smart curriculum.
Helping others learn how to reduce debt, build
savings, budget their income and enhance job skills is just one step in
breaking the cycle of poverty. When people are financially stable, it allows
them to make financial decisions that benefit themselves and their families,
which, in turn, benefits the community. Being financially stable also puts
families in a better position to handle crisis Ė job loss, illness or other
unforeseen expenses. Helping others learn how to manage their finances means a
more stable community for us all.
